HELENA, Mont.—Montana Republican Party Chairman Don “K” Kaltschmidt issued the following statement after Democrat Jon Tester voted to pass the Biden-Schumer $739 billion tax and spend bill:
“Jon Tester spent his weekend buddying up with his fellow liberal Chuck Schumer to pass their radical, progressive wish-list disguised as inflation relief,” said Chairman Don “K” Kaltschmidt. “Not only did Jon vote to pass their massive tax and spend climate bill which sticks Montana taxpayers with the price tag, he also voted against every effort to make the bill better for Montana families including supporting Montana energy development, securing the southern border and ensuring the IRS doesn’t bully small businesses. What’s worse—Jon continues to lie about how the bill will hurt Montanans—he must be held accountable.”
Tester also refused to use his support for the bill as leverage to restore the Keystone XL Pipeline.
